Medivh

Know Your Lore: From Barathen to Llane Wrynn The Wrynn family has ruled Stormwind for years. (Indeed, they may have ruled it continuously since it was founded, but we don’t know for certain.) During that time, Stormwind found itself isolated and alone against hostile forces, and the other kingdoms of Humanity offered little if any help to their southern kin. So Stormwind and...

Know Your Lore: Continuity and evolution There will be some mild spoilers for World of Warcraft: Chronicle Vol. 2 in this post. But not many, because it’s not a post about anything specifically in that book. We recently discovered that Queen Taria, a character invented for the Warcraft film, is canonically the mother of Varian Wrynn and thus, grandmother of sitting...




Know Your Lore: Khadgar’s destiny Once, when just a young lad of 17, Khadgar of the Kirin Tor — apprentice to the great Guardian Medivh — found himself facing down his mentor. In truth, Medivh may have been a Guardian at one point in time, but he’d since been taken over by Sargeras, the leader of the Burning Legion, consumed...

Khadgar
Harbingers: Khadgar makes its debut The second Legion animated short, Harbingers: Khadgar, has arrived. Khadgar has had a pretty rough journey, and the end of Warlords didn’t go the way he would have liked to see. Not only did Gul’dan escape, but the Burning Legion is on its way to Azeroth for another invasion. Seeking some kind of weapon or...

Hearthstone likely to announce new adventure next week Blizzard Entertainment has sent a Hearthstone-related invitation to various gaming press outlets in the last week, teasing a new announcement. The announcement will take place Thursday, July 28 at 11:00 p.m. PDT. Yes, that’s 11:00 p.m. The announcement is being held at ChinaJoy, a Chinese gaming convention in Shanghai, but will be streamed live on...

Medivh joins this week’s free hero rotation It’s patch day for World of Warcraft, and while the servers are down what better time to talk about Heroes of the Storm? After last week’s mega balance patch and the addition of Gul’dan we’re a week into an all-new meta game. While there are definitely some big improvements, the patch brought some bugs into play,...




Harbingers: Illidan
Harbingers trailer features Illidan, Khadgar, Gul’dan and more Warcraft’s next release of animated shorts, Harbingers, now has a trailer with a glimpse of all of the action. The Legion series promises to dive into the stories behind some of Azeroth’s mightiest characters, and they aren’t kidding — between hordes of Demon Hunters and Legion armies are shots of several familiar faces around Azeroth....

Medivh gets a buff and a price cut with the week’s Heroes rotation Happy Tuesday, everyone! And because it’s Tuesday it’s time for a brand new free rotation in Heroes of the Storm. But on top of the regular rotation this week Medivh’s price will drop to 10,000 gold and a new balance patch gives him some nice buffs. Leoric fans will also be pleased by buffs to...



Chromie lands in this week’s free Heroes rotation It’s week two for Medivh in the Nexus, so just how is he shaking out? If you haven’t picked him up yet, this weekend the entire hero roster will be free to play so it’s a good time to see if he suits your playstyle. (And if you’ve decided to buy him, we recommend waiting until...

Play all heroes free in Heroes of the Storm this weekend This upcoming weekend — June 24 through June 27 — all characters in Heroes of the Storm will be free to play. This event was first announced lived during the HGC Championships early this morning, later definitely confirmed on the European forums.

Medivh trailer teases Gul’dan in Heroes of the Storm, plus patch notes The Warcraft movie trend continues in Heroes of the Storm! Today you can pick up Medivh in game for the standard new hero price of 15,000 gold (or $9.99) and a new cinematic for the guardian teases another hero: Gul’dan. And while we admit he’s not exactly a hero, the video certainly suggests he’ll be...

Medivh and ranked play reworks arrive with latest Heroes rotation Whether you loved or hated Medivh in the Warcraft movie, today he’s finally arriving in the Nexus. This Specialist helps the team by controlling the flow of battle, and we suspect a good Medivh with a coordinated team will likely be able to turn the tide, but without that coordination Medivh is likely an easy kill. We’ll...

Breakfast Topic: Who was your favorite character from the Warcraft movie? I have a confession to make: I went to the Warcraft movie fully expecting that I wasn’t going to like Garona at all. I never really cared for the shoehorned romance with Medivh in the comics, and I think we’re all well aware by now of how little I care for her son. The trailers...

Bonds of Brotherhood
Bonds of Brotherhood expands the Warcraft movie universe After reading and reviewing Christie Golden’s movie prequel novel Warcraft: Durotan last month, I was really looking forward to the other half of the Warcraft movie’s prequel offerings. Where Durotan delved into the story of Durotan and his clan on Draenor, Warcraft: Bonds of Brotherhood takes a look at the early adventures of Prince Llane Wrynn,...

Heroes patch notes, Medivh spotlight, and ranked play reboot Medivh will be the next hero to enter the Nexus. He’ll be introduced to Heroes of the Storm June 14, but in the meantime, you can get a glimpse of his abilities in the latest hero spotlight. Medivh is a Support hero who lacks the heals expected of such a hero — instead, Medivh supports...

Chromie, Medivh coming to Heroes of the Storm Heroes of the Storm has teased its new heroes throughout the week, with the official announcement expected tomorrow. However, the preview video for these new heroes (as well as new mounts and skins) leaked on the Brazilian Heroes of the Storm YouTube account before being swiftly removed. The cat is out of the bag, though,...
